Each wrestler is required to complete weight certification. Weight certification is comprised of three parts: hydration testing, weigh-in, and body fat % testing. The information is used to determine the minimum weight class the wrestler is eligible for and the amount of weight per week that the wrestler can lose in order to get down to the lowest certified weight class. There are a lot of other finer points that the coaching staff will help each wrestler navigate through the season should they desire to compete at their lowest certified weight class.
In order to complete weight certification correctly FOLLOW THE HYDRATION TIP SHEET LISTED BELOW.
